Broadband speed fluctuation
Broadband is not magic, and it can be physically blocked by putting objects in the way of it. It’s why mountainous regions often have trouble with Broadband and why Satellite Broadband can be very problematic. It boils down to the fact that broadband transmits radio waves, which are technically a kind of light, so if you were to put big thick walls of metal between your router and your devices; you essentially sever the devices from the broadband network.
In real terms then, if your Router is locked away in a cabinet, in a different room to your internet-connected devices; you will experience slower speeds than if it were in the same room. So if you are experiencing slow internet, or your speed fluctuates, consider changing where you put your router and your connected devices. It might not fix your specific problems, but it almost certainly will help.
